Alex Roy who held the previous record with a E39 M5 is not going to be happy.

I met Alex Roy once and saw the M5. He is quite a story teller and his book, "The Driver" is a good read.

Alex Roy waited a full year to report his crimes...err...run

These guys waited 3 weeks...I can just imagine the troopers everywhere having meetings and info sharing on how to make sure this doesn't happen again...

98 is a hard average speed to maintain which makes this story even more awesome
